Special issue on porous structures and flow processes characterisation of gas reservoirs

Published 15 November, 2021

Gas shows various flow characteristics in multi-scale porous structures, which are the reservoir spaces and seepage channels for oil and gas. This special issue presents advances made in the field of new methods and technologies to characterise pore structures and gas flow processes of the thermal-hydraulic-mechanical-chemical (THMC) coupling effect in various natural gas reservoirs.

Topics covered:

  • Image-based methods or technologies for characterising the porous structures
  • Porous structure characterisation based on machine learning technology
  • New methods and technologies for numerical simulation of gas flow processes
  • New methods and technologies for experimental determination of gas flow processes
  • Integration of multiple methods to study the porous structure
  • Integration of multiple methods to study the gas flow process
  • THMC coupling processes during gas extraction
  • Geotechnical responses during gas flow within the reservoirs
  • New methods for enhancing gas productivity and safety

Important deadlines:

  • Submissions open: 1 December 2021
  • Submissions close: 31 July 2022
